I used Gonzalez Reeds for 5 years before I became an endorser.
They have elements I like of the 3 brands I used beforehand- Vandoren Bluebox vibrancy, evenness of the Hemke, and the speaking quality of the Rico Orange Box.
Gonzalez Reeds are grown with 10 meter separation, without pesticides, in the Mendoza Region of Argentina.
